Many people are frustrated by uncertainty and complexity in their jobs. I use Agile principles to provide clear and simple strategies so that you can win at work!

Coaching, as a management style, is all about the long-term development of employees and teams. This type of manager will work with employees to develop an inventory of strengths and weaknesses. The manager will work with committed employees to create a career path or roadmap that takes advantage of an employee’s strengths and helps mitigate their weaknesses. The characteristics of this style of management are:

  • Works with employees and teams to ensure commitment
  • Sees the development of employees as a key activity
  • Develops career plans with employees based on strengths and weaknesses
  • Sees mistakes as learning opportunities
  • Prioritizes employee and team growth over short-term departmental goals
  • Supports employees who take initiative and try new approaches
  • Focuses most on those employees who demonstrate commitment
  • Mentors employees moving to other roles in the organization (even outside their department)
  • Values talented, knowledgeable, and loyal employees above all other organizational objectives

This style of management works well with those employees who are interested in growth opportunities within their current area or organization. it does not work well at all with unmotivated employees or those individuals who are not seeking increased responsibility within the organization.
